Eating Fruit

We all think eating fruits means just buying fruits, cutting it and just popping it into our mouths. It's not as easy as you think. It's important to know how and when to eat.

What is the correct way of eating fruits?

If you eat fruit like that, it will play a major role to detoxify your system, supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities.

FRUIT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FOOD. Let's say you eat two slices of bread and then a slice of fruit. The slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines, but it is prevented from doing so.

In the meantime the whole meal rots and ferments and turns to acid. The minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil....

So please eat your fruits on an empty stomach or before your meals! You have heard people complaining — every time I eat watermelon I burp, when I eat durian my stomach bloats up, when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet, etc — actually all this will not arise if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach. The fruit mixes with the putrefying other food and produces gas and hence you will bloat!

Graying hair, balding, nervous outburst, and dark circles under the eyes all these will NOT happen if you take fruits on an empty stomach.

There is no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon are acidic, because all fruits become alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert Shelton who did research on this matter. If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruits, you have the Secret of beauty, longevity, health, energy, happiness and normal weight.

When you need to drink fruit juice - drink only fresh fruit juice, NOT from the cans. Don't even drink juice that has been heated up. Don't eat cooked fruits because you don't get the nutrients at all. You only get to taste. Cooking destroys all the vitamins.

But eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice. If you should drink the juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it. You can go on a 3-day fruit fast to cleanse your body. Just eat fruits and drink fruit juice throughout the 3 days and you will be surprised when your friends tell you how radiant you look!

Tiny but mighty. This is a good source of potassium, magnesium, vitamin E & fiber. Its vitamin C content is twice that of an orange.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away? Although an apple has a low vitamin C content, it has antioxidants & flavonoids which enhances the activity of vitamin C thereby helping to lower the risks of colon cancer, heart attack & stroke.

Protective Fruit... Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power among major fruits & protect the body from cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging free radicals.

Sweetest medicine. Taking 2-4 oranges a day may help keep colds away, lower cholesterol, prevent & dissolve kidney stones as well as lessens the risk of colon cancer.

Coolest thirst quencher. Composed of 92% water, it is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione, which helps boost our immune system. They are also a key source of lycopene — the cancer fighting oxidant. Other nutrients found in watermelon are vitamin C & Potassium.

Top awards for vitamin C. They are the clear winners for their high vitamin C content.. Guava is also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation... Papaya is rich in carotene; this is good for your eyes.

Drinking Cold water after a meal = Cancer!

Can u believe this?? For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal... However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

A serious note about heart attacks HEART ATTACK PROCEDURE':
Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. Sixty percent of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know the better chance we could survive.

When I Am Old...

When I am old, when I am no longer the one you knew
Please understand me, be patient with me

When I spill food on my clothes, when I forget how to tie my shoes
Please remember how I had once held your hands and taught you

When I repeat over and over again words that bored you stiff
Please be patient and listen, do not cut me off
When you were a small child, I had to repeat the same stories over a thousand times, until you drifted to sleep

When I need you to help me take a bath
Please don't get mad at me
Do you remember how I had conjure you to take a batch when you were young

When new technology and new things puzzle me
Please don't laugh at me
Just think about how I had patiently answered your every "why"

When my legs are tired and I cannot walk
Please extend your youthful and strong hands and hold me
Just like the way I had held you when you learned how to walk

When I forget our conversation subjects
Please give me a little time to recall
Actually, what we discuss is not important
I will be very happy if you could just listen to me

When you see me grew old, don't be sad
Understand me, support me, just like the way I guided you when you began to learn about life
At the beginning I guided you to start life's journey, now I ask you to accompany me to finish life's last journey

Give me your love and patience, I will return with a smile filled with appreciation
And this smile, is all the unconditional love I have for you

~~~ Translated from essay from Mexican magazine, November issue, 2004

I saw this...

I went to my relative house last week and I saw this...

A kid who came to this relative's house together with his mother was running around in the house. He saw a cupboard full of collection items and they looked so great on the display shelf. Out of temptation, he opened the cupboard and started taking out those item one by one "just to have a closer look".

Well, I could still remember if we were to do this during our childhood, my mum would gave us her most stern look and warned us using her eye contact: "Put back those items and sit quietly, this is not your house and you have no rights to touch those items."

When we were kids, we were wondering why was our mum so fierce. Why can't she be more gentle and just allow us to do whatever we like.

I could not remember when I started to realize and understand the word "behave" and "respect". When we were not at our own house, we have to respect others and behave ourselves so we will not mess up the harmonious situation and disrupt others.

When the scene got into my eyes last week, I was asking myself how many parents actually taught their child about values. From my observation it is merely a small group and most of the parents are just accomodating their children's wishes.

This is truly we produce next generation who respect others, being humble, with integrity, trustworthy, responsible & etc ... or just merely raising up those kids and our duty is over?
Just keep observing ...

How does it feel...

How does it feel when you have finally done something that has been on your waiting list for so many years?

Happy! Excited! Confident? Energize?? Sorrow because you were afraid that you might have done something wrong along the way? And more worriness...??? Who cares...

Really, who care about that. The only one that matter the most is you, the decision maker. It is about you making that decision to throw out all the "if" questions and accept the challenges by saying "YES, I will do it and I shall give only my best".

"If" questions are truly hypothethical and it exist merely based on our own assumptions. The assumptions was derived out of the mental limitation that were imposed on us over the years. Does the following sounds familiar to you:

"Don't do this, you are far lacking behind."
"Nobody would buy your idea, don't waste your time."
"Don't take the risk dear, you will not be able to make it."

In my opinion, nothing can be more fearful than we doing something harmful to others. As long as our decision is allign to our core values and it will bring good if we choose that path, I would say "go ahead!"
So how would I feel when I have finally made that decision?

I feel good
I feel energize
I feel cheerful for I know I have nothing to be fearful, and
I see hope...

A night that is so meaningful!

Sometimes it is just too hard to explain things that happen in life, no matter how hard you try to find one! At the end, we all conclude it as FATE. I am experiencing an event in my life that most of us will call it as fate...:-)

I met this guy 3 years ago in one of the toastmasters meeting, when I was the President for my home club. At that time he was a newbies in toastmasters arena and was already made the treasurer of his club. My memory bank tells me i do not have special impression about this guy except knowing that he is 130KM away from KL and he is with a security firm. Oh ya, he looked pretty cool and was so so so quiet. Wonder if he ever talks...

Thereafter, his name card is so well kept in my cardholder album. I guess my name card ended the same at his end. And we were just too busy with life and I have totally forgotten about this guy.

Somehow last year, dunno why, out of the blue we get reconnected again and straight away I could recall this super quiet guy that I met before. There were many occasions that we could actually meet up but somehow I was either too busy or I purposely took a rain check without telling him any reasons. I didn't know how he reacted each time but I know I just moved on with my busy working life.

As we continue to stay in touch, close touch i mean, strangely and slowly we got together, one day we realized cupid has actually strike us! The then quiet guy became my partner. I could not imagine this! But it is REAL and unexplainable that I am sharing a lot of things in life with him. It is so wonderful when you have a soulmate that you could share your smile and sorrowness!

Last night, we attended the Valentine Nite organized by the toastmasters clubs in Mandarin Division. Last night was the most memorable and meaningful valentine night I ever had! Towards the half of the event, my partner was telling me that someone has requested him to be the magician and he has to perform on stage in a while. And he told me he tried hard to squeeze for ideas. And he looked tremendously in stress as if he is having a hard time thinking of ideas. But I am worst off, trying to help with the ideas but to no avail.

The MC was calling his name, time for his magic show! Well, I was still innocently thinking of how is he going to handle the magic show, he is not a magician! He then asked for his prop to be carried up on stage, and that convince me even more that he is into the magic show! Wonder how he is going to do it! Well, I must admit I was too innocent! He had a big paper box on the stage, but nobody know what was inside. He was appealing to the crowd that if they could show their encouragement to him, he would perform even better. Clever chap, that is how he garnered the loudest clap from the crowd without telling them to clap! I learnt this!

He was asking for a lady volunteer to assist him and one of the female member volunteered. He said "Your height is not so right for me, I need someone else." He then said "Can I invite Lay Kun to be the volunteer?" The crowd responded and I accepted the call...I walked forward. I was asked to stand on the stage facing a long wooden panel that is full of Chinese Caligraphy. But I wasn't interested on what is written on the wall instead what is going to happen next.. and his 2 helpers were busy taking instruction to cover my vision with a big piece of cloth! The pink cloth is big enough to wrap me entirely. The cloth is suppose to block my view from what is happening behind me...and the BOX!

But in the end, he asked his 2 helpers to drop the cloth and asked me to turn facing the box! "Can you help me to open this box!" Guess what I saw??? A big bouquet of flowers, I mean really BIG, it is a bunchful! I must tell you that my heart was beaten so fast when I saw that and I know what is going to happen next. My tears was rolling in my eyes and I was holding it hard! He then hold the bunch of flowers, knelt down and positioned himself. At that time, I didnt know what was happening around me and among the friends. He put his mic right and said:


It was so clear and wishful!

I was so touched and I never thought that was his magic show! My tears bank was swelling and burst when I can't hold it anymore. My dear, we have almost 70 people (if I got it correctly) witnessing his proposal and I am the focus right answer!

I bent down and accepted the bouquet of flowers from him...and I said through the mic:


My tears was rolling down my cheek non-stop...that was the tears of joy and happiness! He gave me a peck on my cheek and he moved on and said..."I knew Lay Kun 3 years ago in one of the meeting. Last year we get re-connected when I was looking for a test speaker for the speech contest (someone from the crowd interjected that he was actually looking for a wife :-))...That is how we get started and it is blossoming until now. Thank you for all your encouragement in helping me to complete this!"

I could not hear much about what others said as I was too excited and happy! As we walked down from the stage, we received lotsa congratulations from the crowd!

That moment was so capturing and precious, I felt truly great about it! Not only for the surprise that my fiance has given to me, also on our sincerity and commitment in bringing our relationship thus far. Now that we are committing for a family!

I am attracted to the good values in him and I am sure we are able to walk through life with continuos support and encouragement conveyed to each other.

It is a night that will always close to my heart!

What a Sunday!

Yesterday while chewing my food during my dinner, suddenly I felt there was a stoney thing in my mouth and it irritated me. I admit that I am a fast eater and I swallow fast too...guess what the stoney thing went through my throat and landed in my stomach within just seconds...I am just too fast! I really had no idea what was that thingy! Well, since it is already ended up in my stomach, who cares...this fellow should be out from my body tomorrow if "he" could survive his tour in my stomach...haha.

After dinner, I sat in front of my laptop continued with my unfinish work...and out of sudden, another stoney thing in my mouth. It was so hard as I was trying to bite it...Oh no, when I took that thingy out of my mouth, I realized that it wasn't the normal was the filing from one of my tooth...oh no! The stoney thingy that ended up in my stomach must be from the same tooth.

And I could feel a real big hole for one of the upper tooth! No, no, no! Oh no, nightmare for me that I have to visit dentist! I hate the feeling of sitting on the dentist chair watching him holding his tools...and even worse the drilling eeeery. But I could also recall my last appointment with another dentist who was the one did the filing for this tooth. He said "I am trying to save this tooth, but its condition is not so good already. If this "guy" really turn worst later then we have no choice but to extract it. But for the mean time you could still have him."

Then I was telling myself that I need to visit the nearest dentist the earliest possible on the next day, which is today. Here I am at this clinic near my house, I noticed the doctor is also a surgeon. And I had this feeling that I am going to loose this "guy".

I got myself registered, called in and sat on the dentist chair. "Your tooth is badly infected, and you can't do filing anymore but to extract it." See! I knew it! And the surgeon said: "But this extraction is not a normal extraction as your tooth is way beneath the gum. I have to do a surgery to extract this." What? Surgery? And I started imagining the cutter slicing my gum! Oh no!

But the doctor assured me that I won't have any pain during the surgery. What to do, I have no other option and I said "OK lah". Guess what the doctor told me next..."By the way this is not a normal extraction and it is slightly costly, the charges is RM150 for the surgery." doctor, he must have afraid that I will argue about the price after the surgery. If I refuse to pay and he can't UNDO the surgery...hehe...Whatever he said I agreed as I need to solve this.

And before he starts with the surgery, he ask me to sign a letter that state he will not be liable for any...that arise from the surgery. Cool! Go ahead!

The following 20 minutes were the battling between the surgeon with my infected tooth...the surgeon must have hard time pulling this "guy" out...I could hear some loud funny cracking sound. The doctor must have afraid that I will get fainted halfway hearing the sound, he told me "Don't worry with the noise, everything is fine." mmmm, very comforting! I wasn't scared but just wish this over soon.

Finally the surgeon won the battle and the "patient" survived too! Hehe, otherwise you won't be reading this blog now...:-) I got a few stitches....A FEW STITCHES??? This never happen to me, first time that I received stiches of any kind and I need to return to the clinic to remove the stitches...what a good experience. :-) I brought home big bags of medicine, you name it...painkiller, antibiotic, swollen pil, mouthrinse and cotton.

The surgeon said you cannot go to sleep now, you have to sit straight and bite the cotton for at least 2 hours. Haha, I am not worry of this! I am going to shopping mall after this, looking for a few items for my club's event! So I will have no chance to sleep! What a hyperactive "patient"...haha.

I never expect this on this lovely Sunday. But somehow it has made a memorable Sunday! :-) And now I can't talk properly, so I better shut up!

Moving on...

It was such a great day I had today! Ever since I have chosen to follow my heart to embark on what I am passionate about, I feel really good about it! I had the similar feeling many years back when I was still involved in training and other public training for my previous company.

But as I moved on with my career in other areas, I wasn't having the same feeling! It was kind of weird that it was actually sucking away all my energy! Previously I was really an energetic person, I seems to have lotsa adrenalin to take what is in front of me. And I was always is indeed my hallmark wherever I go...but I lost it somehow all those throughout these years!

Where did all these traits gone? I don't know...but I just could not regain that no matter how hard I tried. Well, I battled for quite a while and at the end I have decided to make a crazy turn in my life.

Haha, I don't know. Some might think that I might be crazy on such a decision and some said during such a bad time?...especially when the petrol price is high, the cost of living is shooting up, the economy is still uncertain, and US is having a slump! But I thought it is just the right time for me to move on. So I chose to move on fully into training! To me I believe we need to just move on once we have made that decision, why wait?

But I do have a bunch of friends who said "Yes, you should! Good for you!" Well, it is all in the mind, it is all depend on how we look at things :-)

I could foresee the journey is going to be very exciting! And I am ready to experience the process :-) for me the process matter the matter how you will still get to an end result. If we enjoy and render our best during the process, I am sure we have just done a seat confirmation for success...

And obviously, I am gaining back my energy and cheerfulness! Yeah!!!
